Mountain Passes to explore in Kayin State
Bordered by Thailand to the east, the name Kayin was given by the Burmese Military government. The state was originally named as Karen State.
Three Pagodas Pass is on the Thai-Myanmar border but accessible to foreigners only from the Thai side. It is located between Sangkhlaburi in Thailand and Payathonzu in Myanmar. It s was for centuries along the main land route between India and South East Asia. The strategic location was last exploited by the Japanese during World War II, who used POW labor to build the infamous Death Railway to ferry supplies across.
